Dear Democracy Now! Visitor: We are an independent, ad-free daily news program that serves millions of viewers and listeners each month. Our show is special because we make it our priority to go where the silence is. We put a spotlight on corporate and government abuses of power and lift up the stories of ordinary people working to make change in extraordinary times. We do all of this with just a fraction of the budget and staff of a commercial news show. We do it without ads, corporate sponsorship or government funding. How is this possible? Only with your support. If every visitor to this site in December gave just $10 we could cover our basic operating costs for 2015. Pretty exciting, right? Please do your part today. It takes just a couple of minutes to make sure that Democracy Now! is there for you and everybody else in 2015.

NATO and the Kosovo Liberation Army formally signed an agreement early today requiring the rebels to disarm and demilitarize.

The accord states that the KLA must follow a strict timetable placing its weapons in storage depots, taking down roadblocks and checkpoints and stopping its fighters from appearing in public military uniform.

Meanwhile, President Clinton said today the U.S. will not contribute "a penny" to rebuilding bridges and other infrastructure in Yugoslavia as long as President Slobodan Milosevic remains in power. However, Clinton said the United States will give the country humanitarian aid to rebuild hospitals and power plants.

And German Chancellor Gerhard Schroeder said today that an international summit for the reconstruction of the Balkans will take place in Sarajevo in July.
